Seiichiro Takeda produces works responding to the contemporary life style while respecting tradition and classics based on concept derived from on his research and development of glaze with specific characteristics and design and production using such glaze. To be specific, his works are based on celadon or Chinese porcelain and Tenmoku, and Takeda believes that it is an important task of monodukuri to strictly control the vigorous kiln degeneration and contingency during production.
